Fishing season opens at midnight, experts optimistic
The walleyes should be in a cooperative mood when the season opens tonight at midnight, according to Park Rapids Area DNR Fisheries Supervisor Edie Evarts.
"We completed our egg-take a couple of weeks ago and the walleyes should be hungry after spawning," Evarts said. "I've always assumed that walleyes are ready to eat as soon as spawning is over. They spent a great deal of energy to complete the spawning and now they need to replace that energy."
